Re: Small letters after tags
In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #103 20120714 09:29:05
Re: Small letters after tagsGreat then. Anything else you want to ask on the mysterious guy/gal?

Re: Small letters after tagsNope. We can drop it. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #105 20120714 09:39:26
Re: Small letters after tagsOk, see you. And say hello to your brother if he is still at your place.

Re: Small letters after tagsHe just got in but he went to sleep for a few hours. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Small letters after tagsOkay. Is he older than you or younger?

Re: Small letters after tagsNo one is older than me. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #109 20120714 10:31:13
Re: Small letters after tagsWho knows how many years old he is if you are 90+.

Re: Small letters after tagsOh, okay. I misread your previous post. How old is he?

Re: Small letters after tagsNice try! In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #113 20120714 10:44:51
Re: Small letters after tagsThat doesn't tell me much, now does it. Your age ranges between his age and a million years.

Re: Small letters after tagsHmmm. I did tell you that your answer on gAr's series was wrong. That is something. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Small letters after tagsNeither that nor your brother's age tell me anything about your age.

Re: Small letters after tagsThere are many people on this forum that know my exact age. Why? Because I have told them. Some have even seen my alleged picture. I fear that [blank] has also tracked down that information. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: Small letters after tagsWho are those people? Don't worry, I won't go around asking eberyone on the forum your age.

Re: Small letters after tagsGot ya! Why do you want to know when I have already mentioned a name? But dollars to donuts you did not read it. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: Small letters after tagsI did read it. But did you tell [blank] your age or did he find it out?

Re: Small letters after tagsHe is a very clever guy. I suspect that he works for some government agency that gives him clearance. In mathematics, you don't understand things.

Re: Small letters after tagsBut did you tell him your age?

Re: Small letters after tagsOf course not. It amazes me that you of all people would think I would. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Small letters after tagsBut you said that you told somebody.

Re: Small letters after tagsMixed in with stories and anecdotes, yes I did. They did not believe it. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Small letters after tagsIf it is the story you told me then I must say that at first glance it does seem unconvincing and unbelievable. And as I finally accepted the fact that you are 90, you told me you were 9.
